Scott Carries the Day in 50-28 Moorpark Win

October 02, 2005|Eric Sondheimer | From Times Staff Reports

Sophomore running back Darrell Scott rushed for 242 yards in 29 carries and scored four touchdowns as Moorpark rolled up 488 yards in total offense to rout Thousand Oaks, 50-28, in a Marmonte League opener Saturday at Ventura Buena.

Thousand Oaks (3-1) was ranked No. 25 in the Southland by The Times, but Moorpark (2-2) had played a much tougher nonleague schedule.

The Musketeers opened a 29-7 halftime lead, relying on dominating blocking by 6-foot-7 junior offensive tackle George Halamandaris and 6-4 senior guard Brandon Sofley.

Sophomore quarterback Adam Barry passed for three touchdowns, and Dan Moran scored touchdowns on a four-yard reception and an eight-yard run. Moorpark had three interceptions and limited the Lancers to three first downs in the first half.

Taylor Embree and Delano Howell scored second-half touchdowns to help No. 16 Newhall Hart defeat Lake Balboa Birmingham, 23-13, at College of the Canyons.

Birmingham (1-3) led, 10-7, at halftime and 16-7 early in the second half before Embree scored on a 37-yard pass reception and Howell added a 13-yard scoring run. Howell's touchdown, which followed a 56-yard run by Robbie Casselberry, came with 5:17 left and gave Hart (3-1) the lead.

Hart lost starting quarterback Tyler Lyon to a concussion on the second play of the game. But the Indians' defense held sophomore Milton Knox to a season-low 37 yards rushing.
